Part Number: MSP430F5529
Hi everyone, I have been using the MSP430F5529 launchpad for a while now, however the ez-FET lite is now giving me some issues. I am using the back-channel UART that it provides to talk to my computer, this was working well until I changed from windows to Linux. Now the ez-FET gets stuck at random times where both the "power led" and the "mode led" turn on and the USB connectivity turns off. Looking at the datasheet for the ez-FET  this indicates that it is waiting for a data transfer, however we never consciously sent any information to the debugger, we only used the application UART. Any one know what are the reasons that could cause this error? I had a similar problem a while back due to a faulty voltage regulator sending trash over the serial line but it doesn't seem to be the case since i placed capacitors on the line to verify this. I am using the jetson-tx1 computer running an orbitty carrier board running linux 16.04.

Cameron LaFolletteThe F5529 ez-FET is not compatible with Linux. You'll need to use a MSP-FET.
Energia is working with F5529 eZ-FET Lite on Linux just fine.
